Hi.


It's morning. I open my eyes. His face is inches from mine.

"Can we call Brandon today? Are we going to the park? Can I have just butter on my toast for breakfast? I don't want jam or peanut butter today but maybe a waffle instead of toast. Or how about pancakes? Just one pancake and a toast or can I have one of those tall cookies? I only need two of them. Is J.P. home? Instead of Max and Ruby I think I want Word Girl for my morning show. Do we still have the one about the science competition with the giant robot and the egg cutting thing? Did Mia come back from Chicago yet? Can I call her? Can we have Luis over? Can we call his mama or you can write her on the computer? Guess what? I have your phone. I'm going to take your picture. Right now. Now. Say cheese!"

"Good morning, Bob."

"Good morning, Mama."

  8. Oh, wow, laughing out loud. I wake up with my son three inches from my face sometimes, mostly in the middle of the night, and once my heart has returned to my chest I always wonder how long has he been standing there? A minute? Ten? An hour?
